EK15, Dubai - London Gatwick, is being operated by an A380 (A6-EDO) today instead of the regular B77W. Anyone know why?

Its a one off flight to test the A380 gate at LGW:

From wiki

Quote:
The airline plans to operate a second, "one-off" scheduled A380 flight from Gatwick on 26 March 2013 to test the airport's new three-bridge gate facilities at Pier 6.

There is a press release about Stand 110 (Pier 6) on the Gatwick website but no photos! Would be nice to see what the new stand looks like!

I heard that gate 46 is also going to be converted, although not officially. Could Emirates today announce they will start regular A380 services to LGW?

It may not be announced today, but Emirates A380 to Gatwick will definitely happen. 100%.
